I’ve been looking into ways to make Discourse look a little cleaner if I have a few spare minutes here and there, so I figured I’d document it and see if anything stands out to anyone…
Tried a few things here… changed the new asterisk to “new” text, giving each topic a few more px of vertical padding, making categories a consistent width (dictated by the longest category)
Does the header need a box-shadow? Do the user buttons need outlines? Do topic titles have to be blue?
I’ve seen some reference to NodeBB as looking more “modern” in this thread… is there anything specific (visually) that makes you feel that way as a user?
I’ve been looking at Discourse for over a year now, so some fresh opinions can be nice.
